Olympic Committee Buckles to LGBT Pressure With Rule Change


Reported

The liberal obsession with “equality” has just taken a very bizarre turn… and it could ironically make the next Olympics very unfair. The International Olympic Committee has announced that the 2018 Winter Olympic Games in South Korea will not have any sex or gender standards for athletes, according to The Daily Caller.

That means that athletes can compete in any gender category they wish — which includes stronger and faster biological men  taking on women for Olympic medals.

“[T]here will be no regulations in place at the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018 as we are still awaiting the resolution of the Dutee Chand case,” the committee stated in an email provided to The Daily Caller.

Dutee Chand is an Indian sprinter who was previously suspended from competitions due to her hyperandrogenism, a condition that gives her a testosterone advantage compared to other female competitors. Another athlete who reportedly has the same condition is Caster Semenya, a middle distance runner from South Africa. She took gold at the 2016 Summer Olympics, but her very high testosterone levels made other female athletes question her eligibility.

“These kind of people should not run with us,” stated Italian runner Elisa Cusma, according to The New York Times. “For me, she is not a woman. She is a man.”

Science confirms what common sense already knows: Men have dramatically higher testosterone levels than women, and that gives them an advantage in many fast-paced athletic events.

“Testosterone, found in both men and women has been linked with increased muscle, bone mass, and competitive drive. The average male produces much more of it than the average female, roughly 35 nmol/L. Women usually produce less than 3 nmol/L,” explained The Daily Caller, citing U.S. National Library of Medicine studies.

Experts from the International Association of Athletics Federations have stated that although some women do have higher testosterone levels than others, a healthy female still has nowhere near the average male levels.

“Sweden-based Professor Martin Ritzén, a specialist in pediatric endocrinology, testified on behalf of the IAAF and said the probability of a healthy woman reaching 10 nmol/L of testosterone was ‘zero,’” continued The Daily Caller.

In other words, the separation between male and female competitors in games like the Olympics is based on science, and allows women to be recognized for their athletic achievements while acknowledging the physical differences that exist. However, intersex and transgender competitors may have testosterone levels that are much closer to normal male levels.

It isn’t that far-fetched to envision male athletes who are mediocre in their performance declare themselves “transgender” in order to enter and win women’s events.

That has already happened at the high school level. A runner named Andraya Yearwood was born a male, but recently competed and won as a girl at the Connecticut state track finals. TheBlaze reported that the “trans identifying” Yearwood has left his… er, her… female competitors behind, and in tears.

In the name of “fairness,” the left seems intent on trampling over everyone who doesn’t participate in their social justice experiments. The basis of sport is a level playing field — but performance-enhancing testosterone being allowed in the name of “equalitytilts the competition in one direction.

Will even more women now be left behind by men who choose to identify as the opposite gender in order to win medals? If the next Olympics is any indication, the answer is yes.

Man Who Went Through Sex Change Surgery Warns It ‘Will Ruin Your Life, Destructive Body Mutilation’


Posted by GirlsJustWannaHaveGuns.com |  on August 23, 2017

If you want to know what the transgender procedure and surgery process is like, don’t ask someone who has never been through the process themselves… ask person who has done it.

<iframe id=”a1caf2252e” name=”a1caf2252e” src=”//ax-d.pixfuture.net/w/1.0/afr?auid=539047660&cb=INSERT_RANDOM_NUMBER_HERE” frameborder=”0″ scrolling=”no” width=”300″ height=”250″><a href=”//ax-d.pixfuture.net/w/1.0/rc?cs=a1caf2252e&cb=INSERT_RANDOM_NUMBER_HERE”><img src=”//ax-d.pixfuture.net/w/1.0/ai?auid=539047660&cs=a1caf2252e&cb=INSERT_RANDOM_NUMBER_HERE” border=”0″ alt=””></a></iframe>

Enter Walt Heyer, who penned an article at the The Daily Signalwhom went under the knife for a full transgender procedure; taking hormones and having his male genitalia cut off. The whole nine-yards just so he can live as a woman. After the procedure was done Heyer realized he made a terrible mistake.

The ‘world-famous’ surgeon — Stanley Bider of Trinidad, Colorado — did warn Heyer although he was undergoing this transgender procedure, it would never change his biology into that of a woman’s. In his column, Heyer notes that Trinidad is known as the “Sex Change Capital of the World,” and Biber said he has performed over 5,000 such surgeries during his career.

It was eight years after his surgery that Heyer recognized his mistake. He noted that for him to legally change his gender back to male, he needed to file a petition with the California Superior Court to verify he met certain criteria. Bider, therefore, had to write the letter of verification that Heyer met the medical criteria. In it he acknowledged that hormones and surgery had not changed Heyer into a woman.

Heyer writes, “In the letter, he testified that the surgery and cross-gender hormones had the effect of neutering my external appearance and genitalia, but my internal biological structure and my genetics were still male.”

Heyer quoted another transgender surgery survivor, Rene Jax, who wrote in his 2016 book, DON’T Get on The Plane!, “Sex change surgery will ruin your life.”

<iframe id=”a1caf2252e” name=”a1caf2252e” src=”//ax-d.pixfuture.net/w/1.0/afr?auid=539047660&cb=INSERT_RANDOM_NUMBER_HERE” frameborder=”0″ scrolling=”no” width=”300″ height=”250″><a href=”//ax-d.pixfuture.net/w/1.0/rc?cs=a1caf2252e&cb=INSERT_RANDOM_NUMBER_HERE”><img src=”//ax-d.pixfuture.net/w/1.0/ai?auid=539047660&cs=a1caf2252e&cb=INSERT_RANDOM_NUMBER_HERE” border=”0″ alt=””></a></iframe>

He added to the quote stating, “Both of us came away with the same conclusions: gender change surgery was a destructive body mutilation and a waste of time and money; after the medically-certified gender change, life didn’t improve; gender dysphoria, that feeling of unease with one’s gender, persisted, and was not relieved as promised.”

Via the Daily Wire:

Heyer notes commentary by Lawrence S. Mayer and Paul R. McHugh explain in The New Atlantis:

In biology, an organism is male or female if it is structured to perform one of the respective roles in reproduction. This definition does not require any arbitrary measurable or quantifiable physical characteristics or behaviors; it requires understanding the reproductive system and the reproduction process.

Heyer points out, “Too many post-surgical patients contact me to report they deeply regret the gender change surgery and that the false hope of surgical outcomes was a factor. For children, the focus on encouraging, assisting, and affirming them toward changing genders at earlier and earlier ages, with no research showing the outcomes, may lead to more suicides.”

<iframe id=”a1caf2252e” name=”a1caf2252e” src=”//ax-d.pixfuture.net/w/1.0/afr?auid=539047660&cb=INSERT_RANDOM_NUMBER_HERE” frameborder=”0″ scrolling=”no” width=”300″ height=”250″><a href=”//ax-d.pixfuture.net/w/1.0/rc?cs=a1caf2252e&cb=INSERT_RANDOM_NUMBER_HERE”><img src=”//ax-d.pixfuture.net/w/1.0/ai?auid=539047660&cs=a1caf2252e&cb=INSERT_RANDOM_NUMBER_HERE” border=”0″ alt=””></a></iframe>

He concludes:

I’ve become an outspoken critic of gender reassignment surgeries because many people are not being treated for other co-existing problems first. Instead, they are quickly prescribed cross-gender hormones and shuttled on a path toward surgery. But as noted earlier, this surgery cannot succeed in delivering what it promises. It will only mutilate the body, a far cry from the promised “sex change.”

Media Asks 6 Soldiers About Trump Trans Ban, Get 5 Answers They Hate


Reported

Much to the consternation of LGBT advocates and the liberal media, President Donald Trump did away with a rather progressive rule regarding transgenderism imposed on the military by former President Barack Obama, and Trump did it, of course, via Twitter. In the Twitter post, Trump announced that, henceforth, transgender individuals would no longer be permitted to serve in the U.S. military “in any capacity,” which of course sparked massive outrage among his ideological opponents.

But the Independent Journal Review figured that, since this ban on transgender people in the military will pretty much only affect the military, maybe we should see what actual members of the military think about it instead of asking political advocates and talking heads in the liberal media. It was an eye-opening move. 

“Only two things matter: Survivability and lethality,” stated Army Sgt. Darian Browning, who served in the 82nd Airborne. “Anything other than that is a distraction. We have budget problems, also, already.

“The stated purpose of the Army is to ‘fight and win the Nation’s land wars,’” added Browning. “Any decisions or budget fixes should be centered around that and that alone.”

“The military is a machine that doesn’t breakdown for politics,” said Marine Sgt. Sean Conner, Iraq veteran and MARSOC Raider. “I can assure you that the reasoning for this decision is for the benefit of the whole system.” 

“Considering less than 1 percent identify as transgender in the military, it would be a major burden, and the cost benefit analysis would be in the favor of not allowing this policy to go through,” Conner continued. “The amount of change, cost and redirection would not outweigh the very small pros, if any.”

“The military had it right before with Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, or else things get complicated real quick,” he added. “The rules were there before Trump came around and for good reason. I empathize if they want to serve, but just do it without having to announce your sexual orientation — it’s pretty simple.”

Connor also noted that service members undergoing hormone therapy or sex-change operations are not permitted to work full duty or be deployed, sometimes up to two years, essentially rendering them a waste of time, training, resources and taxpayer money. 

Marine Staff Sgt. Josh Ghering, a veteran of both Afghanistan and Iraq and a former drill instructor, seemed to agree with that last bit pointed out by Conner about transitioning troops being removed from the routine all others must endure.

“We need to be focused on how to improve our warfighting ability, period,” he said.

“If transgendered individuals are being taken out for these procedures and treatments, they are not being trained properly,” he continued. “Before we go to war, we train for over a year on ranges and with regimen after regimen. So then we take these individuals out of training to get their surgery. But what good are they if we are over in a war zone and they aren’t able to contribute to the fight because they’re going through therapy or recovering from said surgery?” 

He added that “the military is not a social experiment. Its objective is to fight wars. That’s where its sole focus should be.”

“I believe that the infantry and combat arms should stay male. (male: being born with male genitalia),” stated wounded Iraq veteran and Army Sgt. Jay Strobino. “In the military, your roles, positions and tasks are very clear and outlined. And I have nothing against transgendered people or homosexuals, but it’ll start confusing those roles.”

“It’s not the ability so much of the individual, because yes there are plenty of females that can out lift me, out run me and so on,” explained Strobino. “But it’s a lower average as a whole, just due to body limitations. And you can’t have two sets of standards for the same group. It just won’t work.”

Strobino asserted that lowering standards to accommodate those with lesser abilities would be worse than having two sets of standards.

“If you’re under the standard then you either train and improve, or you’re not in combat arms,” he said. “There’s no middle ground.”

However, while most of those questioned by the Independent Journal Review supported the policy change in principle, there was at least one who disagreed with it and another who generally supported the idea, but questioned the manner in which it was rolled out.

“I don’t like that he just ran with it. He should have had a policy ready to go and Mattis should have rolled it out,” stated Army sniper Gregory Diacogiannis, an Iraq War veteran.

“The military is here to destroy the enemy. It’s not a social experiment. We shouldn’t be using the military as a petri dish to push progressive ideas,” he continued. “They are a killing machine. People are denied service for all kinds of reasons. Why should we treat people with gender dysphoria differently?”

Diacogiannis maintained that such individuals are in need of help and the military is not the place for them to receive such help, nor would it help the military, and noted that treating people differently or having differing sets of standards would be detrimental to overall morale.

“You will ‘other’ them because they will become a protected class. In combat everyone is equal, it doesn’t matter if you are black, white, gay, straight, man, or woman,” he explained. “But if you let other people live by a different standard you crush morale. Also, we are talking about 0.1 percent of the population not being able to serve.”

Finally, the lone voice of disagreement found by IJR was Afghanistan veteran and Army Ranger Zac Oja, who stated, “I’m curious to see how this will be implemented. Will the openly transgendered individuals currently serving be forced out of the military? Will they be forced to ‘identify’ with what their birth certificate says for gender?

“This, in my opinion, is going to do nothing markedly positive but will open the flood gate to the left for open dissent against this new policy,” he added.

Oja suggested that more time should have been given for further study of the costs/benefits of transgender service members openly serving in the military, in order to gain a better overall understanding of the matter.

“I will say that I have heard nothing but good things from dear friends that have served with openly transgender soldiers,” added Oja.

The media most likely want nothing more than a division’s worth of soldiers vehemently castigating the president and calling this latest policy shift nothing short of horrible, but that is not what they are going to find, at least not with this batch of troops.

To be sure, there will be a handful like Oja who may disagree with the premise, or others, like Diacogiannis who disliked the manner in which it was introduced, but by and large, most members of the military are sure to be at least quietly supportive of the change. They know that the military is not the realm for progressive social engineering and tinkering, but instead is supposed to be a finely tuned killing machine that wastes no time or energy on anything else.

Supreme Court won’t hear transgender bathroom case


Authored

The Supreme Court on Monday declined to hear a high-profile case on transgender rights, sending it back to the lower courts. The justices tossed out a ruling Monday that allowed Gavin Grimm, a transgender boy in Virginia, to use the bathroom he chooses, and ordered that a lower court reconsider the case in light of new guidance issued by the Trump administration last month.

The justices had planned to hear arguments later this month and both sides had pressed for the high court to weigh in amid a national debate over rights for the transgendered.

Grimm, born female, was barred from using the boy’s bathroom in 2014 after the Gloucester County School Board enacted a policy requiring all students to use the bathroom that corresponds with the gender assigned at birth. The 4th Circuit Court of Appeals sided with Grimm, who argued that the school board “impermissibly discriminated against him” in violation of Title IX anti-discrimination laws and his constitutional right to equal protection under the law.  The court cited Obama administration guidance that transgender students should be allowed to use the bathrooms corresponding to their gender identity, claiming those rights were covered federal anti-discrimination laws addressing “sex.”But on Feb. 22, the Trump Justice Department and Education Department sent a letter to the lower court rescinding that Obama guidance.

The fight now returns to the lower court, where both sides vowed to press forward with their case.

“On remand to the lower courts, the Board looks forward to explaining why its commonsense restroom and locker room policy is legal under the Constitution and federal law,” the Gloucester County School Board said in a statement. LGBTQ advocates expressed disappointment in the justices’ decision.

“This announcement speaks volumes to the ways that President Trump’s actions are already having devastating consequences for transgender youth across the country,” said Freedom for All Americans Executive Director Matt McTighe, in a statement.

“All students, including transgender students, deserve to participate fully and succeed in school, and to feel safe and respected while doing so.”

At issue is whether Title IX’s anti-discrimination measures can force schools to allow transgender students to use the bathroom of their choice. The Obama guidance said it did. The Trump administration in withdrawing that guidance said the Obama administration failed to “explain how the position is consistent with the express language of Title IX,” but didn’t make their own case for whether Title IX applies. Legal experts say it’s unclear what the Fourth Circuit will do.

“It could ask for more briefing, it could send it back to the district judge to rule on the merits and then let it come back up,” said Carl Tobias, a professor at the University of Richmond School of Law.

“It could also wait and see what DOJ and DOE [Department of Education] are planning on doing or it could just go forward and reach the merits under Title IX and try to discern the legislative intent from 1972.”

In a statement, Mark Phillis, a discrimination and harassment lawyer at Littler Mendelson P.C., said there are two cases pending before the Second Circuit and Seventh Circuit Courts in which the interpretation of “sex” is being considered in the employment context under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act.

“Since Title IX cases often look to cases decided under Title VII, these cases could have an impact on the way the this case may be decided,” he said.

Legal experts say that the issue could eventually end up back before the Supreme Court, with other cases also making their way through the courts.

“No question about it,” Tobias said. “It’s just a matter of which case is the right case.”

He said Grimm’s case was premature. “The district court never reached the merits,” he said. “I don’t know why they granted cert.” 

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which brought the case forward on Grimm’s behalf, told the justices on March 1 that the Trump administration’s actions made it critical for the high court to quickly resolve the question of transgender students and bathrooms.

“[T]he Court will inevitably have to settle the question by clarifying the proper interpretation of Title IX,” the group said.

Trump Is Taking America Back! Reverses Obama’s Transgender Bathroom Rules


waving flagPosted on February 15, 2017 by

He is the best! He stopped the crazy Obama rule that mandated to all schools and colleges to allow transgender bathrooms! In a clear shift away from his predecessor, President Donald Trump’s White House has asked a judge to cancel a crucial hearing in a legal appeal over an Obama-era rule regarding transgender bathroom use.

Former President Barack Obama issued a controversial administrative rule in May 2016 extending Title IX protections to transgendered individuals, ensuring their right to use the bathroom they claim aligns with their gender identity. Had state-funded schools, colleges and universities not complied with the directive, it could put public institutions at risk of losing federal funding.

As a result, U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor temporarily blocked the Obama directive nationwide in August. In his ruling, O’Connor said Title IX “is not ambiguous” about sex being defined as the biological and anatomical differences between male and female students as determined at their birth.”

Trump is going to bring back family values and Christian values to America again! It’s time this country to become conservative and normal again! We should stop with the promotion of liberal sick values, all that sick attitude, we have to be normal and sane and good people again!

No more transgender, gay, abortions, drugs, crimes, illegals etc… We have to have law and order, strong police, strong border, strong military, strong churches, more freedom, less socialism, less communism, less utopia, lower taxes, less regulation!

That is the Trump rule, that is the Trump philosophy, and we voted for that! And if he do that, America will be great again!
